This is what players of hybrid classes that only want to DPS have been getting for a long time. But, in their case, it's often worse: for a Paladin or Priest, if for one fight (or for some time) their DPS spec doesn't really work, they don't have another one to fall upon. For DKs, Shamans, Druids, and Warriors, they have only one other DPS option, and are really never expected to pick two sets of DPS gear.A "fix" Blizzard could do is to find ways to greatly improve the offspec gearing speed without messing with main spec gearing speed. There are a few ways of doing that. For example, after the player purchases a piece of JP/VP gear, let him get another one for just gold (though BoP and not disenchanteable, to prevent exploits). In other words, if a character already has a full set of VP gear, he would be able to get another one for off-spec for just gold.The same could be done for tier gear, allowing players to get the desired off-spec gear without the need for two sets of tokens.This would also be a heavy incentive for players to try a new spec or role. Hit a few vendors, go get the proper gems and enchants at the AH, and the player could have off-spec gear almost as good as his main spec one for just gold. The added ease for getting off-spec gear might get more players to try Tanking/Healing than the bribe bags and lower queues ever will.
